Re: Let's see...two Sony lenses for your NEX...

That minolta is indeed rather nice. I wouldn't want to use it wide-open for street photography though because manual focus is hit and miss in these circumstances and zone-focus at wide apertures is impractical.

I guess i did whine a little - but it's a shame that the 24mm region could not have been filled with a sony lens of more reasonable price and size. Now the Zeiss is there it seems, as others in this thread have pointed out, that nex users will not get their own version of the Pany 20mm f1.7 or the canon 22mm f2 - but will be stuck with a monster premium lens that costs well over £800, if you can even find one.
